At Pun Pun we offer accommodation for participants and volunteers. We ask a 2-week commitment from volunteers. If you’re not able to commit to that much time but want to come and check out the project and area for a shorter visit, we recommend staying in the homestay in our village called Earth Home (www.earthhomethailand.com). Run by a woman from the village who converted her orchard to an organic farm with earthen buildings and a very pleasant, comfortable homestay, they provide private rooms and dorm spaces along with meals and a cafe. It’s a short 5-minute walk from Pun Pun and you can come up the hill to visit us during the day.
We also have a coffee shop here with great coffee, fruit shakes, snacks and homemade products for sale.
We take volunteers for a minimum of 2 weeks and as long as 2 months. The volunteer experience is a chance to see what it’s like to live on the farm and in community. We ask that you join our community members for work in the gardens daily during your stay; from about 9-12 in the morning, and then 3-5:30 in the afternoon. This way you can learn hands-on about organic farming practices. Most of the year work will be weeding, planting, transplanting, maintaining garden beds, preparing new garden beds, harvesting food for the kitchen, seed saving, and other jobs on the farm. As we get to know your interests and talents, we can accommodate different projects as well. We will provide simple accommodations, communal meals and direction.
Please consider the following criteria to ensure that you enjoy your stay with us at Pun Pun.
- A keen interest in seed saving and gardening.
- Independence, flexibility and eagerness to learn.
- Happy to live in community and can easily communicate, work, and live with others from diverse backgrounds.
- Enjoy learning by doing and experiencing different ways of doing things.
If you want to apply to volunteer with us please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and please make sure to include the dates you hope to come and stay with us.
